In May of 1973 this ad ran for the “Day-Glo Goes Anywhere Contest” which offered the winner Two Tickets to Anywhere!
Here’s how it worked:
Send Day-Glo your “Ticket to Anywhere” (green ticket bottom right) and ”You’ll receive a free Day-Glo Design Kit, complete with color charts, felt tip markers, layout paper, and complete rules . . . Entries may be in any artistic medium, as long as Day-Glo color is part of the design.”
We just couldn’t pass up posting this ad for Art Staff from August of 1969.
How fondly we remember the good old days when art direction meant “accurate comps, mechanicals and finished art.” Bernard Tango aka “Bernie” is quite dashing too. Even though he wasn’t the “art director to win the Pan American dancing competition in 1938,” we’d hire him any day of the week!
